It’s finally all happening…major life changes. I just quit my job of 6 years, am moving this week up north to be with my fiance, will be starting a new job, and wedding planning. I am SO excited, yet part of me is scared, and a big part of me is sad to leave my mom and best friend since I was little.
I also feel that my mom doesn’t 100% like my choice…the person I am marrying/his background/his family/his career, and that I’m moving to do it all. I know this is what I need to do, though. I will be 6 hours away (driving) so can visit family periodically – especially as my parents get older. They do have my 2 brothers in the area, also.
I don’t even know what to do with myself…I’ve been emotionally eating which I know isn’t good, but it’s comforting. I have lost 11 lbs and am halfway to my goal weight for my May 2017 wedding. I would like to try and focus on the big picture of what I want my life to look like…I will always be involved with my family and make an effort to spend time with them, but I will also explore all that life has to offer.
I am also sad to leave my therapist…she’s helped me through so much in my life and I won’t have that support any longer.
